COVID-19 Updates & Information

The protocols listed below are in keeping with the recent lifting of COVID-19 restrictions, while ensuring that everyone feels safe and comfortable. We welcome feedback, so please let us know any suggestions you have or if there are any practices that aren't working for you.

  • People who are fully vaccinated do not need to wear masks or practice social distancing in the church.  Seats will no longer be assigned. We of course want everyone to continue to feel safe so if there is anything we can do to facilitate this, please contact one of the clergy.
     

  • The reserved sacrament will no longer be placed on the seats unless someone requests it by contacting the church office.  If you have difficulty coming forward for Communion, the Sacrament will be brought to your seat.
     

  • Bulletins will be available on the table as you enter the Sanctuary.
     

  • A basket for tithes and offerings will remain in front of the Sanctuary; we will not be "passing the plate" at this time.  You may also make a secure online donation at www.churchofthemessiah.org/donations.
     

  • Sunday worship will continue to be livestreamed on Facebook; those not on Facebook can view the service on our church online worship page. Those livestreaming from home may come by the parking lot after the service (before noon) to receive the reserved sacrament to take home.  You may also contact the church office to make arrangements to pick up a supply of the sacrament during the week.
